Our guide Stefan was brilliant, very knowledgeable about the history of Portugal and specifically Lisbon. The tour included visiting a cafe for the local custard tarts which are very tasty, and a short trip on the number 28 tram, one of the historical trams that are seen around the city. The tour lasted around 4 hours, one of the longest and best historical tours we’ve ever done and was appreciated by all her took part.

Het was geweldig Stefano onze gids en historicus was enthousiast en had veel kennis. Veel geleerd over de stad het ontstaan en de oude wijken. Hij nam ruim de tijd had geen haast waardoor we 4 uur aan zijn lippen hingen. Aanrader voor iedereen die iets wil weten over deze mooie stad.

Remember to see if you still have to go through the museum ticket office to get the final ticket because on some sites it is necessary.

Fabulous overview of Lisbon, perfect first day activity to get oriented to the city!!

Allows you to take public transport and visit many places.
